Dear guest, thank you for choosing our hotel and sharing your experience on here. We are very glad to hear that you were very satisfied with your room and our staff’s friendliness and had a nice stay.

Mother and daughter (33) just back from 11nights at The lovely Luabay (wishing we were still there) from arrival/check-in, the Reception staff, indeed all the staff very friendly and very helpful at all times, we were upgraded to a superior room (6302) free of charge, which was so very lovely and spacious. Such a lovely atmosphere here. Food fine, always plenty to choose from, fresh, hot and tasty, always something for everyone. Sometimes slight smell at top of entry to dining room but nothing terrible, off putting, nor fault of Hotel. Pool bar/snacks self service: burgers, hot dogs, fries, pasta/pizza, cheese/ham/bread rolls, fruit, yoghurts, pastries, individual ice cream tubs etc., soft drinks, tea/coffee/hot choc. And the very delicious Baileys slush or Tequila Sunrise slush served along with assorted alcohol available on AIl Inclusive. Spanish night booked in advance and the bottle of canarian white wine was very very nice and a nice change to the buffet food. Everywhere spotlessly clean. Location excellent. Lovely beaches, easy access. A good mix of nationalities and age guests, not many young children, which made for a really lovely stay at the lovely Luabay. Would definitely recommend a sunny warm break here. Enjoyed the half day trip to Fire Mountain, with camel ride, stunning scenery. Our 2nd visit to the Island, 1st to Playa Blanca same time last year, however prefer Costa Teguise, just love Lanzarote and The Luabay!

Room Tip: Rooms (without N at end of number) really good size, block 6 gets sun all day

a clean well presented hotel with reasonable facilities located close to the beach and local facilities. Very small glasses for the drinks when drinking beer and lacking in seating and tables on the patio area. Well presented staff who were friendly and helpful and always wearing a smile, After a day or so the food whilst decent became rather boring but this is true of most all inclusive holidays.The rooms were very late to be cleaned but that may be just the luck of the draw. The pool was always clean as were the general areas. Comfortable beds and good sized rooms with plenty of cupboard place. No hot water for three days but that was down to a fault developing in the heating system. My take is don't book all inclusive

Room Tip: always go for a see view room for a wonderful sun rise but be prepared for a little noise from the b...

I stayed here from the 8 sept for 11 nights. The resort of costa teguise is short distance from the airport so not to long for transfers. Booked with first choice and only made about 4 drop off s before the Luabay it was late in the evening by time we arrived and as others have said a nice welcoming drink and then we were escorted to the dinning hall. Then we were checked in and at this stage we paid for a safe and picked up a bottle of water that were free daily. So we were armed with a map and along with our luggage we were left to find our own way ,took a little time now dark we were very lucky to be in the only block with a lift as we were in a sea view room on the 3rd floor. Would have been a very nice touch for them to have some porters to do this for you as this has reflected in my score, my friends however not in the same block had to carry theirs up the stairs so if you have any disability mention this before you go .
The room I must say was lovely we had a deluxe without an N before the number ,very clean and the bed was comfy and the shower lovely no stepping over a bath.
Next was the bar which is up the stairs in the lobby area did see a outside lift poss for deliveries which was also poss used for wheelchairs only a guess. Otherwise they had some tables just outside by the pool . Now during the day there is a pool bar what would make sense for this to be opened in the evening to save people carrying drinks up and down the stairs .
The entertainment in the bar is a bit hit and miss some so awful gave us some of the best laughs but hey your on holiday enjoy yourself. The drinks are made with local spirits and you can upgrade for 8.50€ a day there is also a help yourself tap of beer and soft drink and a coffee machine with polystyrene cups . The bar also has some cocktails included in your all inc the motijio are lovely for an extra 2€ .
breakfast next morning was average to good do miss a nice English sausage loved the crispy bacon .there was loads of choices with fruits,pancakes ,pastries and cereals .
Next the pool it looks lovely loads of sunbeds so there was always some free later on in the day if you had been out . There will always be people who put their towels out early guess they like that spot but it was not needed I used to get to the pool by 8.45 get my beds and then have breakfast this worked fine for us .
The pool bar is self service all day there is a bar also for spirits and nice slushy drinks. It was a nice touch when staff came round the pool with trays of drink points for that . This is where you also have lunch very repetitive burgers,hot dogs ,pasta and chips .
The entertainment team worked hard and we're very nice and don't over try to get you involved .
Dinner, yes there is sometimes a smell not the hotels fault and it seems to come and go guess it just depends on how sensitive your smell is as my husband didn't no what I was on about , never put me my food as the scales told me when I got home . The food was the best all inc I've had but I think that's my fault as I think it's time to go back to B&B or S/C is so nice to choose from a menu and have it freshly cooked in a nice restaurant as the restaurant does have a canteen feel about it.
The location is perfect there is a gate to the beach loads of local restaurants and bars . The is also a square with a band stand with live music great atmosphere we loved it .
Would I go back the staff were brilliant and cheerful the room great the location great food and entertainment just ok so I wouldn't rush to go back but that's not to say I would never go back . Would I tell my friends to go it all depends on what you want in a holiday foodies it's a no go beach and pool lovers yes so you just have to weigh it out .

My Partner and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Luabay Beach Hotel. we had a room over looking the pool area, the room was cleaned every day and staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was good with plenty of choice at all meal times, you have easy access to the beach or if you want to stay around the pool you have plenty of beds,we had lots of nice walks plenty of bars not to far away and id recommend a walk into the square where there is live singing every night,. The trip to fire mountain is a must as is the night at the music tavern I hope we can return to the Luabay thank you for a fab stay and hope to see you again

Stayed here for a week with my partner.
We chose the hotel as we knew it had a good location near the bars and restaurants that we had enjoyed before when visiting Costa Teguise.
Primarily we travel to the Canary Islands for a dose of sunshine in the winter and don't do much other than enjoy the sunshine, read books, eat and go out for a drink.
This hotel allowed us to do that perfectly.
The room was well decorated and clean.
The all inclusive food was a bit limited, but adequate. We ate out a lot anyway.
For lager and wine drinkers the all inclusive alcohol is good.
Would recommend the hotel to a friend.

We have just returned from a week's holiday at Luabay, we had a great holiday the staff were friendly and helpful when we arrived we was welcomed with a glass of bubbly. We had a sea view room which was amazing the room was cleaned every day, the food was good,you was able to get bottles of water free from reception at any time, its a fantastic location. There are shops/bars/resturants less than five minutes walk away.The beach is three minutes walk from the hotel, We was able to get a sunbed by the pool at any time of the day,the pool area was cleaned every morning. We will definitely be returning to Luabay.

Room Tip: Top floor was a good choice with a sea view. Room 1306N
